Carson City weather: Heat advisory issued

Staff and AP Reports

RENO — The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a heat advisory Tuesday through Thursday for much of northwest Nevada where temperatures are forecast to reach as high as 106 degrees (41 Celsius).

The advisory that went into effect at noon Tuesday stretches from north of Reno as far south as Yerington and as far east as Lovelock.

The service said Monday high temperatures should range from 100 to 106 (38 to 41 C) Tuesday through Thursday, with little relief from overnight lows in the mid-60s to mid-70s (18-24 C).

The service says the excessive heat increases the chances for heat related illness, especially for sensitive groups and people without access to air conditioning. Heat stress also is possible for livestock and outdoor pets.

No young children or pets should be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.

Hazy and hot is the Carson City forecast for the start of the work week.
